The Hare and Hounds Hotel
Ranked #1 of 6 Hotels in Tetbury
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 August 2014

I got married at the Hare and Hounds on 12th July 2014, and it was such a fantastic day. All the staff I came into contact with were really pleasant and helpful. I must say that Julia their events coordinator was fantastic and a very calming presence on the day. I got really positive feedback from guests who all agreed the food was fantastic.

As for the rooms, we stayed twice at the hotel, both prior to the day and the weekend its self.
In May we stayed in a standard dog friendly room, as we took our dog with us. The room was really lovely and came with a water bowl, feeding mat and plastic dog bed (bring your own pillow or blanket for you dogs comfort).

On the wedding weekend its self we stayed in the Gamekeepers suite which was so amazing and definitely the best place to get ready on the morning. The Gamekeepers had a separate bedroom, lounge area and lovely outdoor area with a Jacuzzi (unfortunately we didn't have time to enjoy it!)

Breakfast was included in our room rates on both stays. On our first stay it was cooked to order, I suspect as the hotel was not as busy on a weekday. On the wedding weekend, it was served in a buffet style, both hot and cold food, which was actually just as nice as the cooked to order breakfast.

We also ate in the Jack Hares bar during one of our visits and found the food in there really lovely and good size portions.

Overall the Hare and Hounds is a lovely venue to stay if you are visiting the area, and I would say a really fantastic wedding venue.

I don't understand the negative comments that some have put for this hotel. We have visited on several occasions, both to eat and stay, and have never found any issues and problems, and have found the service to have been of a high standard.

Room Tip: The gamekeepers suite is fantastic if you can get it!

Thank you for your comprehensive review and your encouraging feedback. I have posted the review on our staff noticeboard - they all work hard and are proud of the standards they strive to maintain. Thank you for choosing 'the Hare' for your very special day - quietly, we all rather enjoy Wedding days along with all your happy guests.

This was the first time we have had Sunday lunch at the Hare and Hounds. It was important to us as we were entertaining some really good friends from Texas. The food and the service was excellent and we would recommend the location to all.

Thank you for bringing friends and spreading the word. Our English Sunday roast was probably a bit tame by Texan standards, but I am very glad to hear that you all enjoyed it.

We chose this hotel as we were visiting Highgrove. It was the perfect choice as it was on the same road and we were able to check in early as our room was ready which was very convenient. The reception staff were efficient but not overly friendly that morning. Guests arriving after us were offered the turn down service and welcome tray refills but this wasn't offered to us. This wasn't an issue just a little strange.

The hotel and grounds are lovely. Our room was clean and fitting with the hotel style but the bath and shower particularly weren't great. Our window also faced a brick wall. However it was a comfortable room and the toiletries are a nice touch.

Breakfast was fabulous! Friendly and helpful staff, excellent food and an efficient service. Dinner in the bar was also very good.

We would definitely recommend the hotel and would stay again.

We were at this beautiful hotel for a day as we had to attend my brothers wedding at Weston Brit School. This is one of the most beautiful properties i have stayed at. The staff is friendly and warm . We were in the chestnut cottage which was spacious and very comfortable. The bathrooms were beautiful with lovely Molten Brown toiletries. The buffet breakfast was amazing and delicious. This is one place we surely would love to go back to .

We always enjoy hearing from guests who have used our hotel for a practical purpose - like attending a Wedding in the locality - and finding themselves very pleasantly surprised and happily contemplating a return visit.

This was the first occasion that we had stayed at this hotel, having booked the Sublime Sunday package. To say that it met our requirements would be a gross understatement. Every aspect was first rate - a warm and efficient welcome at reception, sunlit lounges, relaxing bars, a wonderful garden to enjoy throughout our stay, exquisite meals which would have graced the West End and a team of staff, mainly East European, who were quite exceptional - friendly, attentive and unfailingly polite. Ours was a modern room in a cottage close to the hotel itself; the room was beautifully presented, spacious and comfortable.

The décor and rooms in the hotel, as well as the beautiful grounds are worth visiting. The rooms were beautiful and spacious with molton brown products, really comfy beds and good quality food at breakfast. I thought the food was largely very good, but variable. Good choice in the bar and a lovely atmosphere.
